For Children


All of our EarlyON programs are Drop-in programs. No need to register, just come and play with us. Drop-ins  allow you and your children to play together and with other parents, caregivers and children. Our Early Childhood professionals are available during these times to provide information on parenting, family, health, development, and behaviour, or to help address specific concerns.
